St. Croix County judge threatened

A Boyceville man has been charged with a felony for making telephone threats toward a St. Croix County judge.

Jeffrey E. Flettre, 40, made an initial appearance last Thursday and was ordered to post $5,000 cash bail on one count of battery or threat to a judge.

The criminal complaint alleged that during a telephone conversation with a deputy clerk of court concerning paying fines for speeding tickets Flettre threatened to "strangle" Judge Eric J. Lundell and also to blow up the government building.
